Scudder's Epiblema (AKA Goldenrod Gall Moth)
July 25, 2015
A new Tortricidae for the site, this one in the subfamily Olethreutinae. It looks kind of bird dropping-y, in fact, when I first saw it, I thought it was a little turd (sorry moth...).
The larvae feed on goldenrod, creating galls in the stem.
A nice NATIONAL MOTH WEEK addition!
